Whenever I’m asked why I’m having lunch with 500 strangers in five years, I always reply that I was inspired by the amazing Kaley Chu and her wonderful book, 100 Lunches With Strangers.

So it gives me a thrill when I hear I’ve inspired other people – like Daniel Levin.

After hearing about my #500lunches quest, Danny, who lives in San Diego, decided he would have 50 conversations with 50 strangers.

Even better, Danny decided he would turn his chats into a wonderful series, called The Mosaic Podcast.

Danny interviewed me for episode 88 – yes, he liked his conversations so much that he kept going once he reached 50.
